  • Games on DVD/Videotape

    I'm looking for games that anyone might have on DVD or videotape of the Rangers with Josh Hamilton in the lineup. Or Rangers vs Mariners games with Griffey in the lineup from the 90's (In particular 1993 and 1994).

    If anyone has any and would like to trade, I have some games on DVD. You can see my list on the Baseball Card Collecting and Memorabilia forum, the Baseball DVD's for Trade thread.

    I was perusing Amazon for baseball DVDs, and I came across this set: Essential Games of the Seattle Mariners... http://www.amazon.com/Essential-Game...4430467&sr=1-1

    Apparently, the complete telecasts from four significant games in Mariner history are presented in this set. If a comparable set were to be produced for the Texas Rangers, what games should be included? Given that there aren't any thrilling come-from-behind walk-off postseason wins that I can think of, I would start with two regular season games: Nolan's 7th no-hitter in 1991 and Kenny Rogers's perfect game in 1994. After that, I would put in the 2010 ALDS Game 5 and the 2010 ALCS Game 6. If video exists of David Clyde's debut in 1973, I might include that too just for that game's significance in Rangers history (first big event, etc.). Any other nominees?

      Swingman, the only DVDs I have of any Josh Hamilton games are from the 2010 World Series set I bought: http://www.amazon.com/Francisco-Gian...4434226&sr=1-1

      Josh Hamilton wasn't at his Josh Hamilton-best in that Series. I mainly bought it to try to spot myself and my son in the stands. I haven't yet, but we were at Game 3 of the 2007 World Series at Coors Field, and we were able to spot ourselves on the DVD of that telecast.

        Another game to include would be that first game of the Aug. 22, 2007 doubleheader in Baltimore. The Rangers won 30-3.

          I just saw that the Astros are getting a 50th anniversary DVD set featuring full telecasts of four games from their history: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...pf_rd_i=507846

          So the good news is that sets like these are still being produced. I'd still like to see a Rangers set with at least the four games I mentioned above...

              I saw that Amazon lists an "Essential Games of the Texas Rangers" as being released on August 14th, but they don't have a listing of what games are included... http://www.amazon.com/Essential-Game...7290593&sr=1-1

                I found a listing of the games included on moviesunlimited.com: Since moving to the Dallas-Ft. Worth area in 1972, the Texas Rangers have given local baseball fans some Texas-sized thrills, and you can relive four of the team's biggest victories in this four-disc set. Included are Nolan Ryan's 1991 no-hitter (his record-setting seventh) against Toronto; the 1996 ALDS game 1 win over the Yankees in New York; and the pennant-clinching game 6 wins in the 2010 and 2011 ALCS. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo.

                If that's accurate, then I attended three of the four games included (the only exception being the 1996 ALDS game). And as I recall, neither of the two ALCS Game 6's were really close games. The one in 2011 ended in a 15-5 score.
